Masaru Shichinohe was born in 1959 in Aomori Prefecture, Japan. He graduated from Musashino Art University, College of Art and Design with a major in architecture.After working in an architectural firm for three years, he started his career as a professional painter. The atmospheric pressure on Masaru Shichinohe’s planet also approaches zero.A palpable stillness pervades his tableaus of young boys and girls, glassy-eyed rabbits, mechanical baubles, celestial bodies, led zeppelins, and clocks eternally set at 12 o’clock.Even demonstrations of movement like the trajectory of a billiard ball are stopped in mid-air at different points, recalling the Italian Futurists’ experimentations with multiple exposure photography. They are stutters in Shichinohe’s otherwise frictionless space.
